If someone that knew what to look for actually went through the books they might find quite a few things not on the up and up at multiple locations. But that’s the thing no one will look at the books that knows what to look for or cares that will make them do anything until something extremely costly happens but by then it’ll be too late. The ILP system is a sham and everyone knew it when they replaced mcs with it. They are more concerned with efficiency than putting out a reliable locomotive to pull freight thats the new railroad and until someone that cares about the customers and customer service gets in charge that’s just the way it’ll be.
Closing soon per Omaha.
Maybe you guys need get some tips from NP it really works. Highly doubt NP will have any fourloughs any time soon if anything maybe a call back. They cant afford to loose any more.
NP loves to pad the books. They will add task for filling cooling water, then add task for every gallon that was added to adding low on water task all give times that is clearly double dipping in the flate rate world and NP is eating it up. Hopefully vena and his team sees that and does something about it. Padding the books makes everyone look bad and NP needs to send alot of guys home they haven't been hit at that shop. It's time vena get in there and send them packing. Clearly falsifying is going on
It's pretty simple guys/gals. Put in the tasks for the work you have done. No matter small it is(literally even if it's just one bolt) . These tasks are the criteria they are judging everyone on. As far as how much time is given on certain tasks, that is the the Railroads problem. They are the one assigning the TIME to each task, not the workers. While I agree some tasks are generous with the time while others do not give enough. Hence why sometimes you can get high hours or work your a– off and hardly get anything at all. But time adjustment will be a process that UP will adjust in ILP2 over time(and they have been) You can't get in trouble for putting in the tasks you did. What ever the time associated with it, is the UP problem. Remember we are not working for the railroad of old, where all they cared about was releases and on time trains. Vena is obsessed with data and pie charts. That is all they care about now. So gotta somewhat roll with it or else people go home. Simple as that.
You just need to know what tasks give you the most time. It's called flat rate and now the railroad is looking at it. I dont agree with it but that's the rules of the game the railroad wants us to play.
Wichita cooks the books.. Always have, always will
That's because of what NP signs off. Guys check out there work ques look at what each person signs off and the task they put in. Theres no way possible one guy can sign off 20 hours plus in one 8 hour shift unless your padding the books. I sure hope the higher managment team looks into this and sends them packing for falsifying documents. Seems like NP is the only shop doing it the other shops are keeping it real and honest.
NP is busy like always n lots OT. Numbers are high n best compared to our shops maybe cause its main Hub.
